Mom prays for prodigal child

Jesus Prays For You

Have any of your prodigals come home to live with you due to job loss or school shut down? In these unprecedented times of pandemic and stay at home orders, I wonder how full your houses are. What a challenging time of growth and opportunity the Lord has set before us.

Are you weary, dear one, as you persist in prayer for your prodigal? I’d like to share a beautiful truth with you today to encourage you

Jesus is praying for you.

Let’s read Hebrews 7:25 together, “Therefore He is able to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He (Jesus) always lives to make intercession for them.”

Other portions of scripture reveal how Jesus prayed for His disciples – that Peter’s faith would not fail, that they would have Jesus’ Joy, and that they would be sanctified in the truth of His Word:

“but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”  Luke 22:32 (NASB)

“But now I come to You; and these things I speak in the world so that they may have My joy made full in themselves. Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.”  John 17:13, 17 (NASB)

Let all that sink in.

Jesus – Lamb of God, Savior of the world, Victor over sin and death, full of grace, is praying for you and for me.  All praise and glory to our Glorious KING!

What this means for us is that no matter how low you have fallen or how discouraged you may feel, you can, again, stand in the power of Jesus.

Look up to Him, spend time with Him, and continue to persevere in prayer for your prodigal son or daughter.

He’s at work in our lives and in the lives of our children! Where there is breath, there is hope.
